Split case pumps for South Oil Company pipeline in Habbaniya, Iraq; construction by Progetti Europa & Global SpA

The pumps will be installed at the new Habbaniya (PS4) station located along the Iraqi Strategic Pipeline

The contract was executed by Ruhrpumpen and Siemens AG in favor of the main EPC contractor Progetti Europa & Global SpA (PEG) for the supply and installation of turbo pump trains powered by Siemens SGT-400 Gas Turbines. The Iraq Oil Projects Company (SCOP) will hand over the station to the client, South Oil Company (S.O.C.), after a successful run.

The pumps will be installed at the new Habbaniya (PS4) station located along the Iraqi Strategic Pipeline, enhancing the transfer of crude oil to terminals and storage destinations.

Both of the pumps—type ZLM I 530/08—have a flow of 24,656 GPM and a head of 1657 feet with a rated power of 10,326 HP. The pumps were successfully tested at our German manufacturing plant and have already been delivered to the client. They are expected to be installed by the end of this year and put into pretest operation in March, 2014.

With its new project in Habbaniya, Ruhrpumpen is proud to expand its partnership with the Iraqi oil and gas industry Ruhrpumpen has worked extensively in Iraq for more than 40 years, and this latest contract.
